Elita earned her undergraduate degree from the University of North Carolina, and her MBA from Campbell University. She spent the first 10 years of her career in various finance and accounting roles including risk management, cash management, internal audit, and business controls, including several years at Toshiba Global Commerce Solutions, where she helped build an audit team and a framework of internal controls.
Once she joined the clinical research industry in 2016, she was hooked. By the time Elita joined CRC in June of 2022, she brought several years of project financial analysis, finance business partnering and proposal budgeting experience within the clinical research industry. Her clinical experience includes time at Syneos, RTI International, and most recently, Aperio Clinical Outcomes, where she supported business development and executive management by building proposal budgets and providing ongoing financial analysis.
Elita is energized by creating and improving tools and processes, and loves collaborating cross-functionally to support operations teams in meeting their financial goals.
